    i think it has to do with the format limitations of the device. I have the same problem with cnet video podcast. Device just doesnt play them.

    You'll have to wait for Froyo 2.2 and Adobe Flash 10.1. CNN videos are done with Flash. I just got 2.2 installed on my Droid tonight along with Flash 10.1 and the videos on CNN play just fine. :wink:

    I haven't tried skyfire. Yet. But I think the cnn mobile/touch site video is in a quicktime format.

    Just tried and was able to watch one of the videos on CNN's homepage with Skyfire so you should be good to go.

    I just finished reading a thread 15 pages long about how to get froyo 2.2 not rooted to find out at the end that it was rooted.
    Did you mean search it in the forum? or where can I download it from. i have done a lot of reading in this forum and others but I still always see people posting troubles during the process of rooting there phones so I don't want to be stuck not knowing what I'm doing wrong

    CNN uses .mov files apparently for their streaming. I tried to watch the oil disaster video, and it downloaded a .mov.
    I read a few places to try renaming it to .m4p. I just gave up. It's enfuriating that everything has become so iPhone dependent, while leaving out the rest of the mobile market. I know a lot of people own iPhones, but is it really enough to justify ignoring the rest of the mobile market? /rant
